I talked to a few more djs, and the best-priced dj around Grand Forks is XL93 (the main popular radio station). They were the dj for Becca and Tyrone's wedding, so I know they would do a good job.
Lee sent an email to our first choice for a photographer, Shawna Noel Photography. Lee's brother Neil is a commercial photographer, and Neil worked at UND's student newspaper with Shawna. We have yet to hear back from her, but I am hopeful our wedding date is not taken yet!
I have been perusing the internet looking at invitation ideas. I really like the invitations with pocket folder envelopes, but the pocket envelopes are expensive (average $1.50 per envelope).
I also like the modern invitations. Here's a design I personalized on FedEx.com. I was surprised to find FedEx/Kinkos has really great prices (the invitations average 65 cents for the quantity I would be purchasing) and a wide variety of wedding invitations to choose from! They also have coordinating save the dates, rsvp cards, wedding programs, menus, etc. The invitations are easy to customize.
I also like this simple, elegant invitation:
If I were to go a more elegant route, I have always liked damask patterns:
Here's another FedEx invitation in white on black damask:
